    Exploring the enchanting beauty of Meghalaya along with exploring the science and architecture of its living root bridges is an experience. These bridges are nothing less than marvel as they are made from trees. The War-Khasi tribe in Meghalaya noticed that the branches of Ficus Elastica Tree grows along many rivers and that whenever its branches and roots spread, they intertwine with each other to form bridges. Over the years, these simple bridges grow stronger, as more branches cover them. The Khasi tribe realized that these sustainable bridges could help them cross rivers and now, whenever required, they grow their bridges. These bridges, which take about 10 to 15 years to become useable, are the highlight of this trip. This trip would not just help you appreciate the stunning, enthralling beauty of Meghalaya, but it would also help you understand the importance of co-existence with nature, while enjoying and exploring everything. In Cherrapunji, you will have a delight with rains and with treks, you will feel the adventurer coming alive in you. And dont forget to interact with the locals, they would leave you spellbound with their knowledge and their culture would certainly enchant you.
